Re: Sawzall blades - regrind into cheap knife blades?

That smaller M2 knife lies in my display cabinet as i still need to make a sheath for it. I use it fairly often for cutting cardboard, which it does very well. In the past i've even used it a few times to finish shaving my head when my electric clipper broke down. http://i609.photobucket.com/albums/...

Re: 3 Classics You Want To See As SPRINT RUNS

Forgot the name of this model, but it came in 2 sizes, and with aluminium or G10 handles.
Would like to see these made again with full hard HAP40 steel or equivalent.

Re: How do S110V and ZDP-189 Compare?

Mr.Hanada from Rockstead told me several years ago that ZDP-189 was originally developed as a mould or matrix steel.
